Annual Me-Time: A Reset

Conscious I haven’t published anything proper for almost 45 days(?). So, a couple of life updates. I’ve been hermitting in my apartment for the past 3 weeks from late September. It’s only an hour drive away from my house and I feel kinda bad for not wanting to go back home just yet, still enjoying…

Exhausted [share]

Exhausted (25,000 dawns)

I remember Before Now. I used to get on planes and hop time zones and teach leadership programs and give speeches that made me vibrate with anxiety beforehand. I used to have a gruelling schedule, …

We Like Being Gaslit

Was reading and highlighting this article here and felt like I disagreed. Nope, just like all my sabbaticals…. I gained clarity and perspective for 3 days. And bam, all back. Just like my burnouts, all 4 of them. Right back on it in 3–4 years. Yes we will ride some momentums, make some improvements, and…

Judging Digital Nomads

I can’t be the only one who finds these “work hard anywhere” photos in Instagram as silly and shady, can I? When I work, I look at screens. My sight and thought are completely glued there. I am focused. In flow. If I am at some place nice, then I want to enjoy the view…

“x year sucked, next year will be better”

[caption id="attachment_165" align="alignnone" width="758"] “ready for next year”[/caption] Saw this tweet the other day. Somehow it stuck with me and I started thinking about it randomly in the shower. Thought it’d be interesting to list some of the things that popped into my mind: Selection bias. Obviously this Twitter account configured the search to look…
